September/October 2022

Hello Region 7 educators and administrators. The UM-RIEC has been working steadily to prepare for a full year of serving you and your students. There are many opportunities available this semester to engage in professional learning, including the much anticipated Alabama Teacher Growth Program for administrators and the Alabama Core Teaching Standards for classroom teachers.


We can also provide targeted professional learning opportunities designed specifically for your school or district. Administrators, please contact the center directly via email (veazey.um@gmail.com) or call 205-358-8543 to request targeted support.


Please take a moment to follow our social media pages on Facebook (@UMRegionalInserviceCenter) and Twitter (@UM_RIEC) for ongoing announcements. We look forward to serving you this school year.
